    Simply Japanese Beaulieu 2021

    Last year we met at Cadnam Cricket Club Car Park on the A337 Post code: SO40 2NR. Assuming most people will go via M27 and get to Beaulieu via Cadnam, Lyndhurst etc on A337 Meet from 7.30 to leave at 8.00 for a lovely drive through New Forest

    FB and rival Club Stands

    The forums seem to be getting ignored when events are arranged and people NOT on FB don't get to hear about them. A lot of forum type questions get asked on FB when the answers are on the club forums, which can be searched for (not on FB!). This results in the same old questions being asked. FB users need to be pointed in the direction of the 2 existing forums, Drivers' Club and Owners' Club. Another club has started up (Cult 86 which I admittedly have joined) that are having separate Club Stands at shows i.e Japfest Silverstone surely we all want a gathering together of as many 86's as possible not rival stands!

    ABS/Traction control warnings

    Luckily I took out extended warranty. Problem was ABS main control unit £3200. Dealer said they'd not had it before.

    How about Cadnam Cricket Club Car Park on the A337 Post code: SO40 2NR. Assuming most people will get onto M27 and get to Beaulieu via Cadnam, Lyndhurst etc on A337 Meet 8.45 to leave 9.10 for a lovely drive through New Forest

    ABS/Traction control warnings

    Straightforward service, no comments about anything. Was done on 17th with MOT. I haven't been driving like a maniac, just seemed to come on when moving away at a roundabout slowly! I do have a good relationship with my dealer so hopefully will be rectified without too much expense.

    ABS/Traction control warnings

    Thanks for that, I'll have a look. Tried disconnecting battery and checked fuses to no avail. If I get no joy I may just wait until I can ask the Toyota garage that did the service that if they sort it out free I'll extend warranty, no sorting then I'll go to a different franchised main dealer for the warranty.

    Go Japan! - Brands Hatch, Sunday September 13th

    Have booked for the Joint event! Go Japan & Tunerfest together should be interesting, two shows for the price of one.

    ABS/Traction control warnings

    Had car service and MOT 2 weeks ago. ABS and Traction control warning lights came on when leaving a roundabout. Still on after restarting engine. Any ideas? My 5 year warranty has just expired and I'm intending to start an extended in 3 weeks time so don't really want to go to Toyota unless it's something to do with Service/MOT. Fuse, sensor?

    If we arrange to meet beforehand we can convoy in and, hopefully, park together just like normal for a stand. We'll sort something out nearer the event, if it goes ahead. I rang Beaulieu on Wednesday and was told that it was definitely going ahead and they are working out the numbers and logistics.

    Hi Mark, I'd be interested in the ticket. I think Beaulieu are waiting for Boris's new guidelines today as to what they will be able to open, Museum etc. There will be no Club stands and cars will have to go in together and, hopefully, should be able to park together! Kevin
